The latest story I've thoroughly enjoyed is nostalgia's Notes on the Domestication of Birds, which manages to take the dodgiest of premises (the Doctor and Rose settling down) and actually make it work in a way that is utterly heartbreaking.

Also, for all the recs I've been colelcting for the last 10 months, I've been posting them here and here

who else has recs?

Moi! They're spoilerific for those who haven't seen the 2005 series yet, though. So be careful out there, folks!

Thanks for starting this thread, LJC. Mind if I suggest a title tweak? How about, Fan Fiction: Welcome to the Multiverse ?

Ok, I'm going to try this again as the computer ate my first try.

For fans of the Third Doctor I'd recommend Jeri Massi's Always the Third Doctor page. She has quite a few stories and covers his entire era as well as some spinoff stories starring Liz Shaw. She has a great grasp of the characters, especially Jo and the Master. I only wish she had an interest in writing for some of the other Doctors.

Back in the day, there was some fanfic that paired off Romana and David Letterman. Anyone else ever see this? It was a decent entertaining series written script style, that kind of petered out as the author moved on to other things. Very satirical.

LJC - I've just finished reading all of your fics. Well done! You've got the characterization down pat. Fantastic! Please let us know when you write more.

BTW, I also like your Firefly stuff. I'd read it before at some archive, but I just thought I'd let you know. I really enjoy your writing.

I don't know if this qualifies as fan fic, but I don't know where else to put it: A hilarious OT3 pictorial!

Because who wouldn't want to have threeway sex with the Doctor and some other hot guy? ("Hey, I'm Captain Jack Harkness, wanna have sex?")

Ah, that's you? I love "The Dangers of Exceeding the Blinovitch Limitation Effect", as well as any story with the Master in it. Well, all your stories well reward reading.

On a separate note, can any one recommend any good Fourth Doctor fanfiction. I seem to have the hardest time finding good stories about him.

New series rec: Closet Idealists, by chicafrom3 over on LJ. It's kind of a character study of Jack through time (and space!), and it features two of my main fic-reading dislikes-- introspection rather than plot (if there's no plot, I'd damn well be getting some porn out of it instead) and a paucity of dialogue-- and yet sucked me right in. Beautifully written and pitch-perfect emotion and so very, very Jack.

ETA: Spoilers through the end of the first season.

Raksha, that was hysterical!

"Sure!" Rose says, not even needing to think about it, because who wouldn't want to have threeway sex with the Doctor and some other hot guy?

That's made my evening! :-D

Here's a pretty neat crossover with Firefly, though it seems to be discontinued. It features the Seventh Doctor and Ace, and the two universes fit together perfectly.

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2709807/1/

Also, this is a great one with Two, Five, Seven, and Ten meeting the various Blackadders.

Finally, I've just put one of my own up, a rather dark view of the complications when the Eighth Doctor became the Ninth.

LJC, I've been a fan since your Firefly fics so I have been checking out your Doctor Who offerings. I just read Support Undergarments to the Rescue and if I didn't love you before, this would have sealed it.

This is possibly the best piece of fanfic I've ever read. Normally, the topic might make me a little queasy(don't worry, not graphic sex or violence, if that bothers you), but this....just perfect. Made me cry, and I don't often say that.

Jackie Tyler in the Fourth Dimension by Cryptile is wonderful. It's a rather hilarious and very touching look at the Doctor and Rose and the messiness of time travel throughout the years through Jackie's eyes. Definitely a classic.

I have to second the rec for Jackie Tyler in the Fourth Dimension. Knocked me off my feet with its subtle nature and hidden meanings. I liked it even better on the second read; knowing what I suspected the first time around made it seem that much more cruel and beautiful.

And I've gotta rec nostalgia's The Short Revolution of Time
Doctor/Reinette. Series two, episode four, so for the Americans, stay away or something equally forbidding. Steve managed to steal all the best parts out of the episode that didn't happen and make them BITE me on the shoulder. It felt captured and reused and torn to pieced and finally pasted back together. And it was only PG-13, the whore.

and while I'm here, I'd like to rec Barry Rowland Saves the World by Kremmen.
AMAZING humor, fun, out of the world dialogue, and an interesting plot. Fourth Doctor, Romana -- who needs anything more?

Heh. It seems all I can find anymore is angst. I was just coming here to ask if anyone has any happy, funny, or just plain fluffy fics to recommend!

If you like wmr, she's got a nice angsty post-Girl In The Fireplace fic up here. Made me want to die, so you know it's good!


ETA: A Sort of Man by Kate Andrews is 10 kinds of awesome. After she saw the Christmas Invasion special, she wrote this about Ten figuring out what kind of man he is and renegotiating his relationship with Rose. I think this characterization of Ten is quite interesting, although non-canonical at this point. Also, it's kind of hot. I wish this author would write more.

Hehe. wmr's fic mentions famous blondes.

Aside from that, well, I don't know. Is the fic in character for Rose? Maybe in a few episodes when she's been dumped on a bit more, but this fic feels far more like foreshadowing than current. It seems like something that could happen by the end of the season, which is suxxors and still goes with the whole all companions leave idea that is a D'UH that most people seem to forget.

I do like where she finishes up. Staying with Jack while bringing Mickey is an interesting idea! Or does she just dump Mickey? I almost would prefer that Mickey had *stayed* or even considered it before she was all, "Yeah, and I'm going off with this old time traveler friend I had to fight, like, evil things."

A Sort of Man really is awesome. I think it's one of the best fics on this fandom. This: "He remembers wishing her good night, then pounding his fists into the walls until his skin split. He remembers that wanting that with the ache of a stiff, angry red scar." is hot. Really hot. So hot that I wish she'd write a fic about it. Hee.

Speaking of hot, I found Kate Andrews' other Doctor Who fic. It's a Ten/Rose smut piece called Give and Take. By the time she wrote this, she'd seen much more of Ten, so the voice is spot on. So hot. And so cute! My favorite bit is at the very end: "We're going to be good, Rose. We're going to be so good," he says as if it's a wonderful secret meant only for her.. See? Cute! And hot!
